1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Patch pockets on all odd jackets, with welted breast pockets. I would consider patch pockets on some more casual suits, but not on all of them.

    Caveats:

    If shaped wrong (especially in the breast pocket) they can look bad.
    If you use a very large pocket square, it can poof out the pocket in a suspect way.
    If you use a small pocket sqaure, it can sink in a larger breast pocket.
    You might not be awesome enough.

    The last one is a big problem.

    When you get patch pockets on a suit, do you opt for a welted breast pocket?

    Yes, welted breast pocket on suits. For ALL the reasons chorse mentioned.
